“The pattern was really very clear. The score was significantly less for e-cig use than for tobacco use,” said lead researcher Jonathan Foulds, a professor of public health sciences and psychiatry at Penn State College of Medicine. “E-cig users feel less addicted.”
It’s been the case for me.
The frantic need to smoke v. the desire to vape are distinctly different experiences for me. I use the flexibility of nic level and frequency as well as flavor to please myself and aid in concentration and calm. Patches and gums are worthless to me. It’s the tactile and psycho-s0cial needs that fill out the picture. Having had to let go or drastically reduce pleasures from my younger years, vaping is filling the gap nicely.
